tonight, as you know i believe the jet liner is at the bottom of the indian ocean, that's an opinion based on the facts that we have presented here. right now the search for the plane is covering 3 million square miles. good luck. joining us from colorado springs dan hampton, author of the book viper pilot. now, with your background you know a lot about aviation. as and, as i mentioned to charles krauthammer, there are all kinds of wacky theories the media is throwing out there, electrical fire. you know, a stow away, i mean, it's just insane. before we get to this madness, there is one thing that happened today that i need an explanation on. the thai government, thai military now says it did pick up this plane on radar. does that mean anything? >> they picked it up on radar about where all this happened anyway. so even if they saw it in my opinion, it doesn't mean much because we already knew where the airplane was up to this point. in fact, we knew where it was probably a little bit later over the straits.
